As it stands, we’re expecting the festive period to be a little different this year but, that doesn’t mean your traditional Christmas dinner has to suffer. Morrisons are launching a new service to to ensure self-isolating customers can get everything they need for Christmas dinner for two people, for under £20.
For the bargain price of just £18.36, the Christmas Dinner for Two Box contains a British Turkey Breast joint, peeled potatoes and of course, all the Christmas trimmings you’d expect - pigs in blankets, vegetables, stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce - so that customers won’t go without on the big day.
The festive box also includes a starter and dessert, alongside two freshly-baked mince pies, two Christmas crackers, and a selection of wine.
Morrisons has included a recipe card with step-by-step instructions and timings so it couldn’t be easier to serve up the four-course dinner in style.
The Christmas Dinner for Two Box is available to order via Morrisons dedicated Doorstep Deliveries phone line, which enables vulnerable or self-isolating customers to order their groceries over the phone and have them hand-delivered by a colleague from their local store.
Customers will be able to place orders with Morrisons over the phone by calling 0345 611 6111 and selecting option 5. Standard delivery charges of £4.50 apply, with student delivery costing £2 and an optional delivery contribution of £1.50 for elderly and vulnerable customers.
